Ubehebe Crater

Ubehebe Crater

Ubehebe Crater is indeed a large crater, blasted into existence around 800 years ago at the northern tip of the Cottonwood Mountains. The half-mile wide, 750 foot deep crater was created when molten magma neared the earth’s surface, coming into contact with groundwater, creating a large steam explosion that would have sent millions of tons of rock and debris into the air and surrounding area.
